Projecting Team Finland Olympic Roster

Published November 23, 2021 at 1:07 PM

Finland has some high end talent on the roster, all capable of taking over a game and dominating the tournament. But personally when it comes to this roster, I have my doubts that they will be a medalling team. Of the teams we have done so far, Canada, U.S.A, Russian & Sweden, I feel Finland so far has the weakest defence and depending on if Tukka Rask is ready to go by the Olympics, definitely the weakest goaltending. The top 9 forwards though are very good, but I dont think it's as skilled as Canada, U.S.A or Russia.

Teravainen - Barkov - Rantanen
Laine - Aho - Puljujarvi
Granlund - Hintz - Kapanen
Kakko - Lundell - Donskoi
Kotkaniemi

Lindell - Heiskanen
Vantanen - Ristolainen
Nutivaara - Jokiharju
Valimaki

Rask (possible)
Saros
Korpisalo


I am hoping the second line of Laine, Aho & Puljujarvi dominate like they did in the WJC back in 2015-16.
